  2. 2. Offshore deployments of marine energy converters

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Angeliki Chatzigiannakou; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; offshore deployments; risk assessment; wave energy converter installation; marine current energy converter installation; economic efficiency; time efficiency; offshore operations; point absorber; hydrodynamic analysis; slack sling criterion; hoisting system failure.;

    Abstract : The depletion warning of non-renewable resources, such as gas, coal and oil, and the imminent effects of climate change turned the attention to clean and fossil fuel-free generated electricity. University research groups worldwide are studying solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and ocean energy harvesting. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expansion Governance of the Integrated North Seas Offshore Grid

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : João Gorenstein Dedecca; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Union; expansion planning; governance; HVDC; myopic optimization; North Seas; offshore grid; offshore wind; simulation;

    Abstract : The expansion of offshore power transmission and generation in the North Seas of Europe is accelerating rapidly. This is due to several drivers, including the decarbonization and reform of the European power system, and innovations in offshore wind and high-voltage direct current transmission. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wave Energy Converters An experimental approach to onshore testing, deployments and offshore monitoring

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Liselotte Ulvgård; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; ocean energy; linear generator; measurements; sensors; point absorber; offshore; PTO; force; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The wave energy converter (WEC) concept developed at Uppsala University consists of a point absorbing buoy, directly connected to a permanent magnet linear generator. Since 2006, over a dozen full scale WECs have been deployed at the Lysekil Research Site, on the west coast of Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wind-wave interaction effects on offshore wind energy

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Ali Al Sam; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-11]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind-wave; swell; atmospheric boundary layer; marine atmospheric boundary layer; atmospheric turbulence; Large-eddy simulation; actuator line; wind sea; offshore technology; wind energy; wind turbine; aerodynamic;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the investigation of the impacts of fast moving ocean surface waves on the aerodynamics of offshore wind turbines. The impacts of non-locally generated waves (swell) on the Marine Atmospheric BoundaryLayer (MABL) and thereby on offshore wind turbine aerodynamics are studied numerically by using Large Eddy Simulations and the Actuator Line Method.
